We have a downloads.html page which is just a placeholder for links to
our releases.  It doesn't have the Eclipse Code Style Prefs.  (I did
put the Eclipse Code Style Prefs in a directory called "downloads",
but that was just because I needed to put it someplace that wasn't
just alongside all the other .xml source files for our website.)

I see a lot of them hosted at http://people.apache.org/dist/incubator.
 Looks to me like that's the preferred place for those not using

You mean why is the directory 0.9.6-incubating needed?  I think it's
because that directory would contain many files - the binary and
source distributions, and their signatures/checksums.  I think that's
a good idea.

Can you give an example of another project that has their downloads in
their website's downloads directory?  OpenJPA doesn't seem to (it has
links to the maven repository).  Maybe it's discouraged?

I think we don't need to worry about putting our stuff in the Maven
repository, yet.  We can always do that later.
